Azerbaijan, Baku, June 19 / Trend T.Hajiyev /
The question of creation of a united front and consolidation of the opposition in the elections has been delayed, Azerbaijani opposition
Umid party Leader Igbal Agazade said.
"I think that the issue of creation of a united front and consolidation in the elections is belated. This process can be considered as closed," Agazade said today.
The Azerbaijani opposition parties have begun negotiations on a unified position and merger before the parliamentary elections. So far, no single solution was adopted.
Parliamentary elections will be held in Azerbaijan in fall 2010. Previous elections were held in November 2005. The elections are held according to the majority system in Azerbaijan's 125 constituencies.
The opposition will not be able to implement a policy of unity, which the society expects from it, in the rest time, Agazade said.
"One can imagine that how it will affect the election results. Dynamism will decrease, the authorities will do whatever they wanted taking advantage of the fragmentation of the opposition and its disparate activities and the fragmentation in the observation mission will seriously influence the outcome of the elections," Agazade said.
Umid Party's participation in any coalition is not provides, he added.
"A broad coalition would not be only a factor affecting the socio-political processes, but also would give momentum to the electoral process. The failure to organize such dynamism and create a single grand coalition, as well as approval of each party's candidates separately is in fact nothing else than the protection of interests and candidates by each party. But, we do not need to conduct bilateral or tripartite negotiations to strengthen the positions of our candidates," Agazade said.
Umid party was established in 1993. In 2002, the Civil Solidarity Party united with Umid party. Civil Solidarity Party Chairman Iqbal Aghazade was elected chairman of Umid party. Agazade is the member of the Azerbaijani parliament.
